The sojourner

As I remember …


you summoned a storm to pull me in

embraced me with your fronds

dappled me with rainbows

clothed me with moss.

I emerged from your canopy

re-membered, re-claimed, re-minded

smelling of earth and wet and longing.


you unclothe me

drape desire over my caution

recast the calm

till I no longer want to emerge from the weightless ocean

to taste the solid hue of dawn.


Emerging heavy from the dream

I exist without you

…embodiment of paradox, testament to resilience, emissary of love.
